THERE was an outbreak of World Cup fever at Broome Manor over the weekend with a special themed golf day.

A mixture of adults and children teamed up to form the event, which saw 11 teams dress in the colours of teams competing in the World Cup to compete in putting, splash targets and footgolf competitions before the main event at the end of the day.

In total 44 players took part in the scramble tournament, with teams made up of two adults and two children, with the French, Spanish and Australian teams eventually sharing the win with gross scores of 27.

Guy and Tristan Panting and Garry Myatt and Leroy Myatt formed the France team, Spain were represented by Vanessa, James, Andrew and Alexander Emanuel, while Jon Steele, Mike Henshaw, Jamie Daglish and Sofia Corredor Escalante represented Australia.

Broome Manor club professional Lee Hayward was pleased with how the day went.

“The weather was awesome and all participants really made an effort, turning up in lots of colours and representing their allocated teams,” he said.

“When coming up with the idea I wanted to make the day based on the World Cup, whilst involving all the families of our kids on Broome’s junior development programme.

“The idea was to have a fun day out for the families and get the parents involved so we ran mini competitions in putting, splash targets and even footgolf for the children and parents to take part in.

“The day was one of many development days that Broome Manor Golf Complex puts on for its juniors and it was very well supported by all the families, I would like to say a big thanks to all the participants in making the day a special one for Broome.”
